Case-reports.- We describe five cases of tonic dystonia complicating RSDS of the lower extremity. There were four women and one man, with a mean[…][]

  • Compartment Syndrome

    Acute compartment syndrome is a limb-threatening condition often associated with high-energy injury. We present the case of a man who sustained compartment syndrome secondary to an atraumatic tear in the gastrocnemius muscle and the complications which arose in his treatment due to his being on rivaroxaban.[]

  • Venous Insufficiency of Leg

    Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is the most common cause of lower extremity wounds. The venous tree is defective, incapable of moving all the blood from the lower extremity back to the heart. This causes pooling of blood and intravascular fluid at the lowest gravitational point of the body—the ankle. This article[…][]

    We present the case of a 60-year-old male patient, with refractory ulcers in the groin. Ultrasoundand CT showed a large vascularized tumor of the kidney with cystic parts and inhomogeneous dynamic behaviour. Histology demonstrated Pyoderma gangrenosum (ulcer) and well differentiated adenocarcinoma (kidney).[…][]
